Does your neighborhood project need funding?
The North Portland Neighborhood Services Small Grants Program (NPNSG) is a grant provided by the City of Portland, distributed by the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) and administered by NPNS. The goal of program is to provide neighborhood and community organizations the opportunity to build community, attract new and diverse members, and sustain those already involved. The creation of this grant program allows a wide variety of community to be funded and implemented each year.
NPNS will be distributing approximately $20,000 total for community projects to be completed by December 2013. Grant application and selection will be administered by NPNSG committee members, made up of seven North Portland residents, during fall 2012 for projects occurring this fall 2012.
You are encouraged to attend the free North Portland Neighborhood Services grant writing workshop: Tuesday October 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Historic Kenton Firehouse, 8105 N. Brandon St.
You will learn about grant writing, the application and selection process, meet committee members, learn about other projects seeking grant funding for possible collaboration, and how to get individual help with your grant.
